I've found another out there producing a baby now also. These were all grown from the pups from my one and only fruit about two years back.
The mother plant will bear again but the fruit will be smaller. There is supposed to be 'slips' in between the leaf blades - these will produce a fruit in less time than the tops take. A small pot is OK but you would need to refresh the mix and add some fertiliser and keep up the water if you cannot plant it out. Suggested that using a bucket is OK - means about 8-9 L of mix to give the plant the best chance. They do transplant OK although I haven't done one which is currently fruiting. But do give it a handful of Organic Xtra (e.g.) or 5-in-1 or compost.
I just noticed one of my pineapple plant appears to be growing a pineapple! Although it's about 3 years old, but I didn't think it would fruit because it's in a small pot ~ do you leave the mother plant after you harvested, and it will bear again?
